Turner : the late seascapes by James Hamilton( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The English romantic painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is renowned for his sublime and dramatic landscapes and seascapes. The sea held a particular fascination for the artist, exemplified not only by the subject matter of many of his paintings but also by his own collection of ship models and personal experiences as an amateur sailor. This handsome book - written by Turner expert James Hamilton and published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and Manchester City Galleries - focuses primarily on the artist's spectacular seascapes dating from the 1840s, the last decade of his illustrious career." "Turner: The Late Seascapes provides new and provocative insights into these powerful works, relating them to the artist's interest in poetry and drama as well as his curiousity about science, optics, and photography. Turner's extensive travels - which clearly fed his imagination and inspired his choice of subject matter - are explored in depth, as is the relationship between Turner's paintings and seventeenth-century Dutch precedents. Hamilton also examines the important role of the pendant in Turner's late art, arguing that his paired works have intentional associative narrative, stylistic, and chromatic meanings. In addition, the author traces the evolution of Turner's famous Whaling series, offering a new source for it, and examines Turner's captain Elisha Morgan and the English photographer John Mayall, both of which have been previously overlooked in the literature on the artist." "Including more than 90 examples of Turner's dramatic and lively marine pictures - 70 of which are reproduced in full color - this elegant book sheds fascinating new light on one of the world's most beloved artists."--Jacket

Mind-forg'd manacles : William Blake and slavery by David Bindman( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Blake (1757-1827) was unusually aware of the horrors of slavery, which he knew about in detail from a book he illustrated. But slavery was to him not only a physical system but a mental state of restricted perception that he called 'mind-forg'd manacles'. Mental enslavement and its opposite, freedom, gave rise to his most dramatic and complex text and images. With over 60 vivid reproductions from Blake's illuminated books, watercolours and engravings in the British Museum, this volumes includes an essay by the curator, leading Blake scholar David Bindman on the theme of slavery in Blake's visual imagery, and another by novelist and literary critic Darryl Pinckney on Olaudah Equiano, an African former slave who campaigned for the abolition of slavery in Blake's time. This book commemorates both the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Britain, and the 250th anniversary of Blake's birth."--Jacket

Designs of desire : architectural and ornament prints and drawings, 1500-1850 by Timothy Clifford( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designs of Desire - Architectural and Ornament Prints and Drawings 1500-1850 is a fascinating survey, which introduces a wide selection of drawings and prints not associated with paintings and frescoes, but with architecture, sculpture, and the applied arts. Explored here is not just the world of elevations and plans for churches, palaces, and gardens, but also designs for temporary decorations for triumphal entries, firework displays, coronations, funerals, and many aspects of pageantry and feasting. Here are drawings for metalwork, textiles, books, ceramics, and glass and, above all ornament designs made expressly as sources for the most sophisticated craftsmen working within these disciplines. This helps to remind us that most artists, until comparatively recent times, were not concerned solely with painting but were commissioned by their patrons to produce designs for a very wide variety of their desires. Artists worked within certain recognisable and identifiable bounds that we now call 'fashion'. The greatest artists explored, developed, and sometimes even invented decorative art forms and styles, and the lesser artists mimicked aspects of their work. Ornament, which has been with us as long as art, was the stylistic common language between the artists and the artefact. This book makes apparent that the language of ornament is strangely limited, and generations since classical antiquity - or even before, in much more primitive cultures - have tended to explore variations on themes rather than to create entirely new languages. Their designs were often astonishingly beautiful and witty, especially when the artists were real innovators. In addition to the designs for architecture, sculpture and ornament are those for metalwork, ceramics, stained glass, textiles and even utilitarian objects such as table cloths and egg cups. The source material provided here would have been used by craftsmen like goldsmiths, maiolica painters, and embroiderers, to guide them in creating the artefacts. The scope of this book begins with Albrecht Durer and his generation c.1500, and it ends in the mid-nineteenth century
